Erciyes is the oldest and the best Turkish in Sydney. Their range and taste of their dips is a taste sensation. The lamb back-strap is juicy and tender. On Friday and Saturday nights belly dancers entertain. The staff are terrific and a great night out with delicious food.

Food is alright. Price is very high. The restaurant needs to be upgraded toilets are very bad they make thousands of dollars and don't want to spend a penny on the restaurant

Went there in October 2016 with a friend based on what she'd heard from her friends on a short visit to Sydney. As I entered the shop, I thought oh boy, this won't be good! simply because of the entrance was via a kebab shop and decor was very simple inside the dining room. The menu also looked very simple...

This is definitely not a fancy restaurant but the food is fantastic. We often come for a cheap and delicious meal. There is a takeaway kebab section at the front which you walk through to get to a large well-lit dining room. We always order the same - large mixed dips with super fresh, cooked to order Turkish bread. We... More

Food was great, all dishes...Kebab, pides... Big portions and good prices. (Not cheap) Waiter speaking on the phone while serving us food. Waiter eating bread from our basket while bringing the food to the table... Amyway. We had a good dinner for a good price. The room is big and they have some live prefomances. The atmosphere also is nice.

Extensive Turkish menu, beautifully cooked every time I've been there. I've been going here for 30 years and never been disappointed. I often buy take away dips and deserts for social occasions- again never disappointed. It is open 7 days, BYO. I would recommend the entire menu to all comers. The Tava is to die for. If you like Turkish,... More

These guys have been here forever and they do not let you down. Crazy-loud Fri and Sat night with the belly dancers but always a laugh, and it is quieter on other nights. They have good air-conditioning for hot summer nights, a great range of really good dips, and lots of really superb Pide, and the best chicken and lamb... More

This restaurant is highly overrated. If your toilets are dirty and smell like sewers, well imagine what your kitchen would be like. The food was well over priced for a turkish restaurant. $41 for a mixed grill and can of soft drink! Being of a Turkish heritage, a corner kebab store can rate better and have more value.

We went with a group of friends and when booking were told we would be given the banquet set menu. This seemed a good idea. The place has a good atmosphere for groups and the belly dancing was fun. The staff too were very friendly. The banquet was a real let down and very bad value for money. $45 per... More

There is nothing quite like Erciyes - pronounced "R Gee Yes". Whatever you order will amaze you. The service will be typically Turkish - friendly and very prompt. Friday & Saturday night belly dancing is the best you will see anywhere outside Turkey - and be ready to get up and have a go - if you don't then go... More
